Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree
The goal of the two-year associate in science degree program in Computerized Drafting is to combine academic theory, basic drafting methods, computer-aided drafting techniques and general communications skills with the practical experience necessary for entry-level CAD drafting skills applicable to engineering fields that utilize mechanical, architectural or electrical applications.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to demonstrate the ability to
- Apply knowledge of how industry processes can be enhanced by CAD drafting.
- Apply understanding of CAD drafting processes to identify problems and formulate solutions that meet required specifications.
- Communicate complex concepts through design principles to create adaptable and efficient solutions to drafting problems.
- Use modern engineering techniques and skills necessary for CAD drafting.
Upon completion of this program, students may seek immediate career opportunities in state and local government public works and transportation departments, or architectural, electronics and manufacturing industries as draftspersons and/or CAD operators. Students may also choose to continue their studies in the Engineering Design & Configuration Management bachelor of science degree program (day program only).
